Setting the stage for the Sippican Woman’s Club Annual House Tour to be held on Saturday, December 14, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm is a collaborative effort well beyond our membership: first, our generous five homeowners who open their doors; our local florist Steve Gonsalves of Eden Landscapes, SWC member Bunny Mogilnicki of Bunny’s Bouquets, and Sharon Monteiro of Always in Bloom. Joining homeowners in decorating several of the homes are decorators Christine Dole, a SWC member, and Diane Kelley. Anthi Frangiadis Associates and Cecily Balboni of Serendipity by the Sea are assisting as well in enhancing the holiday spirit in one of the waterfront houses. This festive event starts out a weekend of celebration in the Village of Marion – starting on Saturday, the Sippican Woman’s Club House Tour (10:00 am – 4:00 pm) and Tea (served from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at Saint Gabriel’s Parish Hall) will put out the welcome mat to visitors to our holiday-decorated clubhouse along with five private Marion homes.
The Village Stroll follows on Sunday, December 15, when the Sippican Woman’s Club will again welcome visitors and offer traditional Wassail (3:00-5:00 pm); and for Red Sox fans, an opportunity to win a decorated theme tree: “Red Sox World Series Champions.” Advance House Tour & Tea sale tickets are $20 available at Serendipity by the Sea, The Bookstall and the General Store in Marion and at Isabelle’s in the Ropewalk in Mattapoisett. Tickets are available for $25 on the day of the tour at Coldwell-Banker Real Estate right next door to Handy’s Tavern (152 Front St., Marion) where the Tour starts and where tickets may be traded in for tour maps. All proceeds go to local Marion scholarship recipients. Contact Jeanne Daly for additional ticket information at 508-748-1924.
